Style Stealer: Katie Holmes’ Oxblood Boots & Denim Skirt

Remember when Katie Holmes became Tom Cruise’s beard girlfriend and then wife, and she suddenly got this super FASHION makeover? Well, I didn’t really love it. It always looked to me like Katie was being dressed by someone else, like a Scientology-approved stylist or Tom himself, and not on her own. Now that she’s free, I’ve been pleased to see Katie’s style evolve in a direction that looks more authentically her. Okay, and also I own the perfect pair of boots to wear when recreating this particular Katie Holmes outfit, so maybe I’m biased. Get all the deets for recreating this look — minus the hat — after the jump!
